Chip Heath discovered the Narrative Superiority Effect while working with his students at Standford. He asked them to argue the two opposing sides of a debate and provided them with an array of statistics and only 10% used a story to support their ideas. At the end of the class, only 5% of the audience could recall a statistic while 63% could recall a story. Our program will help you use this effect to have your ideas win in the boardroom.
